Product Description

Akademie Instructor and documentary photographer Nick Rains takes you through the core aspects of photography that affect all cameras and images. Nick has identified 10 concepts that are essential to capturing good images and will present a seminar explaining each in great detail and from the point of view of someone who has been practicing what he preaches for the past 30 years.

Topics to be discussed:

  • Apertures
  • Shutter Speeds
  • ISO
  • Histograms
  • Exposure
  • Depth of Field
  • Focussing
  • Camera Modes
  • Jpegs/RAW
  • White balance

These topics form the core of all photography, particularly the first three, and a thorough understanding of them all will allow you to break through the mechanics of mere camera operation and capture the images you see in your mind’s eye. Even if you have been using a camera for some time you may well benefit from an in-depth look at what this all means.

Notes are provided in the form of a 47 page illustrated PDF. Lunch will be provided too. Please note this is a seminar format with no practical session – fee free to bring along your own cameras though, and we will have a range of Leica cameras on hand to try out.
